Bold new sounds and influences from overseas turned into a social and cultural phenomenon that transformed pop culture in the ’60s

From 1964 to the end of the ’60s, American shores were invaded by British forces—designers, actors, singers and musicians—armed with sophisticated style and accents, and all of them marvelously and exotically foreign.

Dominating the airwaves were tunes from some of the greatest British rock and pop legends. Musical acts ranging from buoyant pop to harder-edged rock plus the most impressive guitar band in rock music climbed the charts and changed not only what Americans listened to, but also how we thought, dressed and lived.

Now these recordings are available in one essential collection of 122 influential tracks, all by the original artists, equaling over 6 hours of hits, plus a FREE DVD featuring 12 full-length performances from the world famous Ed Sullivan Show featuring the Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Includes full-color booklet chronicling this unprecedented and unparalleled period of music history

Featuring artists like…

  • Herman's Hermits
  • Eric Burdon and The Animals
  • The Kinks
  • The Who
